More than a decade ago, Cindy Vezinau saw an empty building that served as a laundromat for the Great Lake freighters and had a thought no one dared have: this building could be an inn. Now, Cindy's dream is a reality! 
The Purple Martin Inn and Guest House is located on the beautiful shore of Lake Huron and nestled in the quaint community of Rogers City, Michigan. It's just 40 miles north of Alpena, 40 miles south of Cheboygan, and 40 miles east of I-75 in Indian River.  We offer secluded and laid-back pure Michigan beach-side lodging that caters exclusively to Michigan's nature loving patrons. It is a typical and beautiful pure Michigan town.

   Enjoy great views of both the sunrise side and sunsets over our quiet bay.   This acre of land, complete with a large garden area and garden

 structure, is the perfect getaway for romantic couples, small groups, mini corporate retreats, weddings and family reunions. Nestled in a tranquil beach community, guests can unwind at the end of the day while enjoying some of the best panoramic views of Lake Huron.  We provide free wireless Internet to ensure that you can keep in touch while enjoying your lodging experience.  To maintain a clean healthy environment for everyone, our entire facility is pet and smoke-free.  We love clean!

The perfect place to UNPLUG!
